Microsoft has released a new update for PowerToys users. The latest update brings bug fixes and improvements to the app. The new PowerToys update also bumps the app to version 0.29.3. Microsoft has noted that the company tested version 0.29.1 and 0.29.2 internally but they were not publicly released. Here is the full changelog for the update:

  • #8808 – FancyZone zones would occasionally not appear. This was caused by two uninitialized variables. During testing, there was a race condition so we missed it. Our push on adding in additional code analysis tools will hopefully catch these types of bugs.
  • #8787 – PowerRename would throw regex errors when it shouldn't. We removed the error dialog for now and will add in a more targeted error catching block at a later time.

Just a couple of days back, PowerToys received version 0.29 update that brought improvements and bug fixes to the Color Picker, FancyZones and PowerToys Run. Furthermore, it also added an option to extract the MSI from the .exe.

If you are interested in trying out PowerToys on Windows 10, you can download the version 0.29.3 update from the GitHub page. Existing PowerToys users will get the update automatically but they can launch PowerToys and click on "Check for updates" to download the latest update manually.
